the republican was george bush and the day before the election he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and the next day, george bush lost pennsylvania. last time around as well the sunday before the election, there's john mccain campaigning in pennsylvania. and then john mccain loses pennsylvania. right before the election, you can set your watch by it. the republican presidential contender will go and campaign in pennsylvania. and every year the media responds by saying, wow the republican is going to pennsylvania. maybe the republicans are going to win pennsylvania this year. does this mean the republicans are planning on winning pennsylvania this year e. and the republicans say, yes, we're going there because we're going to win pennsylvania and they lose it every year. the reason they do this every year is because they want to be seen as super confident. they want to be seen as so confident they are expanding the map. they want to create the impression that they are going to win big. they don't need to go to the so-called battleground states. they have locked all those up. they hav
george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we have a narrow result, because that will mean the new president, whoever he is, doesn't have a terrificcally strong mandate from the public. won't be able to say, look, an enormous majority of the public wants to go my way. if this election is very narrow or even worse, contested, the president is going to have a very demanding job. >> when you speak to voters in ohio, everybody says they want compromise, they want to get things done. do they? >> no. by and large when you talk to american voters, and you've done this yourself, i know, yes, everybody wants compromise and everyone wants bipartisanship. but usually the definition of bipartisanship is the other side should come in my direction. so that's a hazard for any candidate,
wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown: and do you think professor -- >> two decades of strong growth, we saw two decade, 80ous and 90s with extraordinary growth. economists called it the great moderation long boom and that's because the stable policies are put in place. tax reform, if you like, of 1986. a bipartisan reform president reagan worked with democrats in congress, that is the kind of thing we nude to get the strong economy back. >> back to you pfessor goolsbee, just this question about -- >> i agree with that i think tax reform and a grand bargain type budget deal if done in a balanced way would be a good achievement for both part
to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they brief last word on that? >> well, i think as we are talking about four years what is going to happen the next four years. that say time where a president can make a tremendous difference. and we're talking about the past four years. and the president could have made auch betr policy with the unemployment being so high. >> brown: all right, john taylor and austan goolsbee, thanks so much. >> thank you >> brown: and if you're ready for more analysis on the jobs numbers, you'll find it, as always, on paul solman's "making sense" page online. >> woodruff: still to come on the newshour: misery in the aftermath of the super-storm; civilian deaths in syria; a spotlight on immigration in iowa; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the news on bs wasn't enough to lift wall street today. instead, stocks sank on worries that the costs of hurricane sandy will eat into profits. the dow jones in
. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, theyic if one or e other is elected. >> right. you know, i was in the white house for a while and i used to joke, i crawled all around in the basement, i have yet to find that switch down there that you just flip it and then everything gets better. i think 90 plus percent of what happens in a growing economy has nothing to do with washington. what the president and what washington in general can do is try to set the stage and set a groundwork for policy at could encourage growth. and i think the shorter term that you are thinking about, the less can be done specifically by the president. so if you are asking over a one month or three month period, there's very little the president can do. if you start asking over a five year, ten year period, then the policy decisions they make can influence quite a lot the way things go. >> brown: and john taylor, brief last word on that? >> well, i think as we are talking about four years what is going to happen the next four years. th

's been polling and not only did he denounce george w. bush but those democrats who went for the radical regulation. he was very clear about that. and he's populous. what romney has recognized there is real pain out there and people want something done. if obama is more of the same, he's in trouble. >> eliot: look, mitt romney is appeal to go folks right now to folks whose logic is give me something different. the burden is on the president is to say yes but the something different that he's offering is the same george w. bush that was offered in the first place. he does not close the circle. i want to make this point. the adcdos who came out and said you have to raise taxes. does that puncture the balloon of the entirety of the logic of mitt romney. >> it may puncture it if you want to analyze this in logical terms. >> eliot: you're not saying logic is not in politics. >> i don't think it is right now. you may have fired an aide who wrote a speech like that. i think romney is quite wise not to. the banality of what he says is central. he does not want to spell out what he's going to say
recovery. that's well better than the george bush recovery and our modest growth, i agree with you, should be higher. it's also the fastest growth rate of all the advanced countries of the world. the world economy is in a tough spot. so, i think just looking at the conditions in the u.s. and saying it's because of u.s. policy is a little misleading. stuart: okay, what about this 14.6% real unemployment rate. because that's an indication of how it feels out there on the ground. >> yes. stuart: how it feels, it's a political thing, i understand that and it's not pure economics, i do understand that, but that's the reality on the ground. >> no, i'm not disputing that. look, i'm not disputing that the real job market conditions are different than just what the standard unemployment number is. stuart: hold on a second. and. >> wait, wait, wait. here is what i said. we didn't get our money's worth-- we didn't get our money's worth. you go an extra 5 1/2 trillion into debt and i expect better than 7.9 unemployment rate and 14.6 real. >> stuart, the 14.6 unemployment rate, you keep failing to ment
the presidencies of bill clinton and george w. bush. dan balz of "the washington post" is author of a narrative of the 2008 campaign. and michael duffy of "time magazine" is author of a book about the world's most exclusive fraternity. the name of that book is "the presidents club." michael duffy as these presidents go from being campaigners to being presidents, how are they transformed? >> you know we asked a couple of the presidents who are still alive what they remember the big surprise or the big shock being when they finally stepped from being candidate into the oval office. and they say three things. one is the speed of the decisions come much faster. and unpredictably. they can't control the agenda. the second is, they're all hard. there are no easy ones and they all are fairly outspoken about just how difficult the choices are. basically there are downsides everywhere. and the third thing is that's a little more interesting. just because you make the decision doesn't mean anything happens. when ike took over from truman, truman said "poor ike, he'll think it's just like the army. do thi
1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the reco
, george bush when in transition to the white house. so, you know, it's got lots and lots of history going on there. it's also prime position in d.c. it's only five blocks from the white house. jfk attended the opening in 1963. it cost 179 dlsh a night. >> let's go west coast. san francisco. what presidents have stayed at the fairmont hotel? >> the fairmont is the first fairmont, actually. opened in 1906. it's on knob hill. it's a prime, prime position. it's where the u.n. charter was drafted in 1945. so also all sorts of hist think. go across the tram and go to alcatraz. you know how much i love napa. it's a two hour drive away. >> and what's the price point? >> that's $279 a night. >> let's go to houston, texas, a hotel called the huse tonian. and i'm sure this is a favorite of the bush family as if they needed a place to stay in texas. >> of course, it is. it's a bush home from home, if you like. it's like a country club in the city of you might bump into george bush sr. at the manner restaurant or barbara bush in the spa. there is also an enormous activity center, 25,000 square foot. t
the nation in most bars per capita and in most bush/obama counties, that is, people who voted for george bush in 2004 and then barack obama in 2008. they really vote the candidate, not the party. how many cows do you have total? >> 820 cows. >> reporter: wow. hello, girls. so, yes, it is easy to find conservative dairy farmers upstate, like dan brick. do you get subsidies from the government? >> yeah, very little subsidies. my thought is, i wish they would eliminate all subsidies altogether. part of it is just because the government is broke. >> oh, my goodness. >> reporter: but if you wander up to hallowed lambeau field on a sunday morning and if you hang out with the most sophisticated tailgate partiers in the world you'll find all stripes. conservatives, liberals, socialists, many of them either related or best friends for life. >> romney is a successful man and -- >> can't say obama's not. >> successful politician. >> you can't say obama's not. >> what did he do in the business world? >> he's written multiple books. he's made a -- >> he made himself money, yes. what did romney do? >> he m
-known liberal bias. first katrina tainted george bush's presidency. then isaac wiped out the first day of the republican national convention. now hurricane sandy. sandy, what kind of name is that? are you a dude storm or a lady storm? oh, big surprise, just when obama needs a boost, who shows up but a gender-ambiguous weather system, a category 5 by cure cane. (laughter) hey, hey, don't get me wrong, i don't mine you being a hemispheric scale meteorological event, but why must you be so flamboyant and in my face about it? (cheers and applause) no, i'm hurricane sandy, deal with me! now, make no mistake, folks, the hurricane agenda is to make the federal government look necessary! (laughter) well, mitt romney understands that disaster relief belongs only on the state level. as he explained when asked about his plans for fema during a primary debate. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> stephen: r
george bush and obama has cut the red tape. that is not something that republicans thought was possible at the federal level. >> and how big a government does a big country need? how big a government does staten island need when it is under water tonight? it needs a bigger government and it needs the american government in there. one of the things, new york city has a lot of government. there are 60 departments in the city. and the fact of the matter is the irony is that all of this government replaces a lot of freedom. and who is going to have a say in that government. how will be things be distributed in the hard of the argument? the question is it going to be there for folks that are poor and on medicaid. it is about who would benefit? >> the thing that has happened that has been painful is that fema seems to be working better than it did under george bush and obama has cut the red tape. that is not something that republicans thought was possible at the federal level. >> and how big a government does a big country need? how big a government does staten island need when it is under wa
. if this was george bush the media would be screaming bloody murder. listen to the people suffering in the northeast tonight. >> fed up. fed up. this line. that line. what are we? is this america? >> we are here for you. and we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure that you get all of the help that you need until you have rebuilt. >> we have no food. >> people trapped in here still. >> we pledge to h help those whose lives have been turned upside down. >> don't have anything, anywhere to go. i don't have no clothes. >> people here are still working. they are still looking for people. it's craze. >> we look out for one another and we don't leave anybody behind. >> nothing has been done here. >> where are you going go? you have no gas and no nothing. >> 22 years in my home and i lost it. >> and you have people saying i'm going to die. i'm going to guy. i wish i had the audio but i don't. >> sean hannity i would say that the same federal government that controls fema that can't preposition gasoline trucks near service station and preposition bottles and mres is the same federal government tha
that was think difference between al gore and george w. bush. and if republicans are not going to try to make an issue to try to deelectoralize president obama, then we have a flood here. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much david. clearly the electoral vote looks great. the popular vote, not so much and especially if these blue voters in new jersey and new york aren't able to get to the polls, that means progressives where every you have got to vote. your vote really does matter why you ask? because the right-wing will fight his agenda at every turn. losing the popular vote gives them actually a shred of legitimacy, a leg to stand on and it's not going to matter to fox news that george bush lost the popular vote back in 2000 so bottom line even if you are in the deepest blue or deepest red, get to the polls! send in your ballots! your vote absolutely matters if you care about the president's ability to carry out his promises in his sec term. coming up bipartisan gets a much-needed shot in the arm. president obama visits new jersey with my new favorite governor, c
press secretary under president george w. bush. hello to both of you. >> your setup there looks fantastic. democracy plaza looks great. >> i wish you were here to see it. they have been working so hard on this. i could go on an on. we have details to get to. people ice skating. it's just cool. but let's talk about a couple of different ideas here, karen, with you. two respected political analysts have widely divergent predictions for the election. nate silver gives the president an 84% chance of winning and says he'll get 305 electoral votes. flip side mitt romney will be winning with 315 electoral votes. does anyone know what's going to happen? >> no, of course not. this is why i love politics. and this is why i love the pollsters. they try to apply science and data that predict. we're talk about human beings. and human behavior is unpredictable. we can have a sense of what we think is going to happen. the numbers i've been looking at are some of the early vote numbers. for example if you look at some of of these battle ground states and the number of people who have already vo
is the same thing that actually was practiced in the george w. bush administration. president obama isn't using george w. bush's name, but the message is actually pretty crystal clear. and you're seeing these two competing closing arguments at the very end. >> with that being the argument from the president that, you know, especially before hurricane sandy it was when mitt romney unveiled this notion that he is the change candidate here, how has his campaign, or have they effectively fought back that what he is offering back at this late game, 3, 2, 1, what we is a at the bottom, he offering anything that proves he would in fact bring in change? >> well, he hasn't rebutted those criticisms of how his policies are different than george w. bush's. the one he has pointed out, and he did this at the debate is he would actually balance the budget, something that george w. bush didn't do. so that's where he says he would be different. but when you actually look at a lot of the advisers, a lot of the economic policies, they do seem the same. and he hasn't really rebutted that. but what he is a
